Welcome to the 2nd grade website.  I hope this site will be a resource for both my students and parents.  My goal is that this site can provide a means of communication between school and home.

My name is Debbie Michels and this is my tenth year of teaching.  Prior to coming to Elgin, I taught second and third grade in Mott.

I enjoy finding new ways and ideas to teach.  The students will be doing a lot of hands on and experiments this year.

My family consists of my husband Rick who works at First International Bank.  We have three grown children; Katie, Chelsey and Kyle.  We have been blessed with four beautiful granddaughters;  Kiley, Jaela, Adleigh, and Kenlee and a handsome grandson; Braddex.  I enjoy being out in nature, camping, photography, scrap booking and sitting by my pond feeding my fish.

If you have any questions please contact me by phone or email.  The school’s number is 584-2374 or you can send me an email by using the “contact me” icon on the sidebar or send it to
